Edoardo Miroglio’s Bulgarian Pinot Noir

Panorama vigneti cantina Edoardo Miroglio Wine Cellars Bulgaria

Piedmontese producer Edoardo Miroglio has purchased a farm in Thrace and produces, among other things, an excellent Bulgarian Pinot Noir there.

When you go to lunch with certain friends who have made a love of wine their life, you expect to drink strange or peculiar bottles. This one, which I am telling you about today, at least for me is very strange, not to say unique: we are talking about a Pinot Noir made by an Italian in Bulgaria. Raise your hand if you, among you, have ever had such a wine!

But back to us, we are talking about a 100% Pinot Noir, 2012 reserve, produced from the estate’s grapes in the municipality of Elenovo, within the local appellation PDO Nova Zagora, in the region of Thrace, in Bulgaria precisely. The company has more than 200 hectares of vineyards between native and international grape varieties. Pinot Noir succeeds particularly well because the climate in this part of Bulgaria is particularly congenial to it. It is also the variety to which Edoardo Miroglio has devoted his best energies, both out of a personal passion for this grape variety and because “producing a great pinot noir is the philosopher’s stone for winemakers all over the world.”
